Ok so everyone has an opinion about the closure of the News of the World, who should resign, who shouldn’t. It will go on for weeks and months. Sadly good people have lost jobs.
My moan of the day though is about this:
We will run no commercial advertisements this weekend. Any advertising space in this last edition will be donated to causes and charities that wish to expose their good works to our millions of readers.
Why is it that anytime someone does something wrong or something goes wrong the default response is, “we will donate it to charity…that will make it all okay” It doesn’t, you are just trying to purge your demons.
Charities need to take a stand.
Do not accept this offer. Say no to it. Let’s not lower ourselves to this patronising offer from Murdoch.
What do you think?
